As part of our #Grazia360 extravanganza, we're taking you on an all-angles tour of fashion weeks around the world. So far, there's been exclusive chats with the likes of Victoria Beckham backstage and Harry Styles on the FROW - but what's fashion week-ing like for the models who are working the catwalk?
We turned to Thea Hudson, represented by Premier Model Management, for her take on the action. This is Thea's first season at London Fashion Week so you can imagine her excitement at being part of the action, but there was many long hours too. 'I was out at castings sometimes for at least 12 hours of the day. Every morning I need to have a bowl of porridge, so I topped mine with plenty of fruit, nuts and seeds to keep me going until I had another chance to eat,' Thea told us.
Thea also admits that she was nervous about her first few castings. 'It’s a weird feeling being judged on your walk and I felt all shaky, which isn't great when you have to walk in high heels!'. But by Saturday, she'd booked her first LFW job - Markus Lupfer's presentation. 'I had such shoe envy during the presentation... if only I could afford them!'
The up-and-comer also met Alice Temperley and walked for Thomas Tait. Click through Thea's exclusive diary above to see LFW through her eyes...
